Notes

Fullers optic porter recipe clone, got it from the fellers at Jims Beer kit.
One of the best porters I,ve tried so far, very similar to other craft breweries smooth porters.
Dont give much too much of this beer away & they usually want more(Go brew your own!).
I use rainwater, so RO would work well, London water is imperative.
Have used Windsor yeast to get a 9/10 beer but us05 makes it a 9.5!
This is nice!.
Cheers.
